We had the king bed/jacuzzi room. The motel room was nice and had a nice balcony off of it. No phone in the room but most people have a cell so no big deal. For 2 adults we were given 3 towels and face cloths (smelly and worn out). Bedding was torn, not fresh and pillows were totally flat. So....bring your own pillows and towels. The room is supposed to be cleaned daily but ours wasn't. Overall, I would definetly suggest staying in Owen Sound. The town of Tobermory is not managed well and everything is over priced to the extreme. I can't name one place we ate at that I would recommend. You can also rent tents in Bruce National Park, they'r called "Turks", looked really cool. Have your own deck, barbeque and its situated right next to the water, looked really peaceful. Would also suggest going to Foodland to buy your food.

i stayed in this wonderful motel for three nights during a visit to Tobermory. It wasn't my first choice, but I was quite impressed overall, especially with the cleanliness. That cleaning girl just doesn't stop. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!

Clean and efficient. Small picnic area with microwave, BBQ, toaster. The seaside deck is nice, but few chairs and need to walk 200 meters to get there.

Rooms were top notch (like New condition). Julie and Brent were super friendly and spent time with us explaining many of the local attractions Tolbermory had to offer. We were right around the corner from the Ferry Chi-Chi-Man and had no problems boarding from this location. We had originally planned to spend only one night in the hotel, but stayed for both nights because we were pleased with all services and amenities that were within walking distance from hotel.

This motel at the top of Hwy 6 has lots of curb appeal with landscaping and lights. I opted for the least expensive room: 2 double beds with older mattresses. No fridge or ceiling fan. TV was older, but fine. New bed comforter and accent pillows. Light tweed carpet had stains, but I was there end of season. There are penalties for smoking, pets, or steam bathing in the room.

No phone in the room. The furnishings are similar to a Comfort Inn: ight wood with brass accents. Old generic art prints on the walls. There's a table and 2 chairs next to a long 4 drawer unit. I could hear my neighbour's TV and muffled conversation.

Heat/air conditioner wall unit - but no digital thermostat. Separate dehumidifier in the open closet. Sliding glass doors (with newer drapes but no sheers) lead out to an open patio with chairs. A street is there, then trees and the lake.

Washroom a little bigger than expected. It has a baseboard heater with wall thermostat. Tub surround, large mirror, and homey gold-coloured towels. Hot water was slow to come through in the early morning - but it did come.

Regular office hours begin at 7am, but they have a mailbox for dropping your metal room key if you're leaving early. What makes this place special is the outdoor pavillion with microwave just past the parking lot, and the seating area across the street. Checkin advice about the community very helpful.

Considering the Bruce Anchor Resort is not an expensive motel, it provided all the amenities needed for a one or two night's stay when travelling with small children: spacious rooms with relatively comfortable beds, a small fridge, cable on TV, a balcony (that connects to the other balconies of our group), just across the street from a large deck overlooking the water. I was visiting in early September with a group of six adults, and three children (all under the age of 6). The pop machine and icemaker was right next to our room; the coffee at the front office was hot and fresh. The resort was a 7 minute walk into town - great way to play tourist and enjoy Tobermory.
Do stay at the Bruce Anchor Motel, and do enjoy the Blue Heron boat cruise to Flower Pot Island... just DON'T dine at the Lighthouse Restaurant in Tobermory.

While staying at the Bruce Anchor, I had the opportunity to experience two different rooms, due to the decision to extend my stay. The staff were more than helpful in making everything happen with no interruption or hastles.
The rooms were well taken care of, comfortable and well laid out. I appreciated the sitting areas to enjoy an early morning coffee and snack.
Everything in Tobermory is within a ten minute walk from the door of the room which made it easy to enjoy the town without having to worry about finding parking spots.
I had the chance to meet and chat with staff and owners and everyone treated me like I was valuable and part of a family.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.
